ThinkScript Entry Bar question


I have a strategy that I am wanting to covert to ThinkScipt. I am new to think script but have read the manual several times.

All was going well with my conversion until I got to the exits.

I want one of my exits to exit the market when the price is < the entry bar low - .01. I have searched existing strategies for a model to use as that is how I usually back into what I want. I have not found any examples to queue off of so I thought to post the question.

Can this be done? Maybe I am approaching it wrong all together but any help would be greatly appreciated.

AddOrder(OrderType.SELL_TO_CLOSE, close < stop_point );

I want the stop point to be Entry Bar low - .01.

Thanks in advance.
